Cholestatic jaundice in the newborn

B. A. Haber, A. M. Lake

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Neonatal cholestasis or direct hyperbilirubinemia in the first 3 months of life is nearly always more pathologic than physiologic. This article reviews the extensive differential diagnosis of cholestatic jaundice and the approach to diagnosis. A sense of urgency is underscored by the value of early recognition and intervention in metabolic, iatrogenic, and anatomic disorders. The long-term management goals are reviewed, including indications for hepatic transplantation.
